Cardiff lose, so we're still in with a very long shot of getting second. If we win on Saturday and Cardiff fail to beat Hull, then we'll still be mathematically in the race come the last day of the season.

Just our luck that Fulham and Cardiff could hardly ask for two easier games, whilst we have to play two of the divisions better sides.

It is never a game to take for granted when you play against a team that are already relegated.

Oooh what a surprise, blatant penalty would have put Sunderland 2-0 up and the Ref doesn't give it..What a farce, & people wonder why Fulham have gone unbeaten for a zillion games, they constantly seem to get the rub of the green (or dodgy officials would be more apt maybe) it's happened in several games with them this season... appears the powers that be are intent on getting another London club in the Prem lol!

The officials spoilt that game, no wonder Sunderland were pissed off with things, its been said before the refs are crap in the Championship.

Fulham win, but surprisingly only 2-1, their goal difference is now better than ours by five goals, but between their last game and our two remaining games, that can quickly turnaround, what would really help us though, is a big victory tomorrow, even winning 3-0 would mean that going into the last day of the season as long we win and they lose we'd be guaranteed to match their goal difference.

Of course we need Hull to get a result against Cardiff tomorrow as well, to take it to the last day of the season, even then it's only a very small glimmer of hope that we have, one small grain of consolation if we miss out, is that it shouldn't affect us too much psychologically going into the play-offs, as finishing second as been a long shot for a while now, whereas with whoever misses out, out of Fulham and Cardiff, will probably feel the disappointment harder, as they were both so close.

Good to see someone who hasn’t jumped on the paranoia bandwagon. Keep going FFS! Dancing Banana Dancing Banana Dancing Banana

We're hanging in there to stay in contention, but last two games we've dropped four points, and if it wasn't for injury time goals in the last two home games we'd be on five points now rather than eight... I feel as if Saturday has become a must win game, otherwise the gap between ourselves and top two will be in danger of increasing to five points, and some might say that that's nothing with so many games left, and it's a marathon not a sprint, but we kept saying the same all last season, but with Bruce once other teams steal a march on us, it's so hard to catch up, because even when we go on a good run, a bad run to cancel that good run is never far away, and so at best we do just about enough to stay around top six, when with the resources he's had we should be doing so much better.

The target for automatic is simple maths, we need 2pts per game on average, as soon as we fall behind this, the pressure will increase
4 games 8pts, on target just !

I would want 20-22pts on the board after our opening 10 games, minimum. If we have 24pts on the board after 10 games then we’re title contenders.
